The last time we met:

Morecambe's season so far:

Morecambe come into this game in 7th place in Sky Bet League 2 having picked up 19 points from their 12 matches so far.


Whilst the Shrimps have an excellent away record this season, picking up four wins and a draw from six games, their home form hasn't been the greatest with four defeats from their six games in front of their own fans. Their most recent home game saw a 3-0 defeat to next weekend's opponents Carlisle United.


Morecambe were among the league's top scorers last season but also conceded a hefty 91 times. That approach seems to have continued this season with Jim Bentley's men yet to experience a goalless draw and have only once failed to score in two games - at Grimsby on the opening day of the season and last weekend's defeat against Carlisle.


Morecambe's last five results:

Notts County 1-2 Morecambe

Morecambe 0-3 Carlisle

Morecambe 3-1 Stoke City (Checkatrade Trophy)

Barnet 2-2 Morecambe

Morecambe 2-3 Crawley
